Re: Star Trek: First Contact

This gets back to the shortfalls of a four star rating system. Jammer, would you consider re-reviewing you whole database of Trek reviews to better distinguish beteer the great and the good?

Re: Star Trek: Nemesis

Interesting to see what most of the above postings say. I actually agree with most of the comments in the review but i would not have given it the same rating as Generations (come on, Picard cries like a baby) and Insurrection (He sings like a drunken sailor). It deserves better and stands uo to repeated viewing better than the two aforementioned films. That said, it doesnt come close to First Contact. I sort of think that whilst some loose ends were tied up, Paramount wanted to leave things open in such a way that they could make another TNG film if they wanted to. Its a pity, I think they could have been bolder. Would like to make one additional point - I think they should have included the edited scene in Picard's Quarters where he and Data share a glass of wine. It would give more poignancy to the scene following Data's death where the cast share a bottle of Chateau Picard. Anybody else have an opinion on this?

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

Have to disagree that TNG had the best finale. The Time travel device usually breeds success in ST, but on this occasion what should have been a great episode was just a good one. Sure, coming ful circle with the first and last ever TNG epsiodes with Q standing in judgement over humanity was very clever, and the final scene with Picard joining the Poker table works well, but the last ever episode should have done more to showcase and send off the TNG ensemble. for me, DS9 did this a lot more effectively. That said, they waited to get a lot in over 90 mins that they could have resolved throughout the final 10 episodes. But the character goodbyes were particularly good (Garak/Bashir Bashir/OBrien Kira/Odo Odo/Quark). I also thought that the final shot of Kira and Jake (reminiscent of the Visitor) was a great way to end. One criticism of this is that Bajor did not enter the Federation, which is gaping ommission by the writers. I also liked the idea of Siskos destiny in principle, but I sort of felt that his characters destiny was very much unresolved. I felt at the time of the DS9 finale that these were unresolved elements of the overall story and as time goes on and it seems very unlikley that they ever will be, as I doubt there will ever be any DS9 TV movies. On the whole, however, and back to my original point, I was very satisfied with the ending of seven solid years of story telling (Thanks Jayson) of DS9 - the TNG Finale was just okay
